Divided in 3 spaces, a central hallway and two sides (central has higher ceilings than two sides, and the two sides are not as well lit and darker than middle) huge scale makes you feel small, intimidates you - After hallway is space only for clergy - Clear stories with stone grills (allow light to enter into the central hallway) - built out of stone to last a long time and to make it stick out (no stone in desert, plus, an important building should be built out of special, hard to get materials) - Temple of the sun god Amon 1450 BC Greek – 450 BC - Ex.
